Bellissimonde presents electric world music and complex rhythms. It's music to dance to: belly dance, folk dance, fire dance, and rituals.... There's something for everyone.
The Bellissimonde CD includes pieces from Algeria, Armenia, Persia, Turkey, and Spain.
* Monty "The Drummer" Cowles plays a whole lotta percussion. Ancient hand drums –- doumbec, tar, riqq and bendir -- complement the drum kit.
* Sylvia Hackathorn wails on electric guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin, varied with special effects pedals, and embellished by haunting airs on the Indian flute.
* Patricia Scott adds castanets, Turkish spoons, zils and qaraqsh from North Africa.
Take this incredible performance home with you.
